My favorite thing to write is... middle grade and teen fiction, with the occasional short story for grown-ups thrown in for good measure. As for reading, I love just about anything, as long as it's fiction and not boring.
When I'm not writing... I'm trying to invent ways to get kids and grown-ups excited about writing (i.e. I'm a freelance writing teacher).
In a past life... I studied developmental psychology and was a toy designer and product manager at a specialty toy manufacturer. Yes, it was fun. No, it was nothing like the movie Big.
Bits of random... I grew up in NYC, which completely warps your perception of what's "normal." It was only when I went to college that I realized most kids actually had houses with yards and tire swings. Seriously. I thought suburbia was something Hollywood invented so they had a place to set their sitcoms.
When I was 4, I started playing the violin because my best friend at preschool played the violin and I was horribly susceptible to peer pressure. I've been playing on and off ever since which means that I've had a longer relationship with my fiddle than I've had with most humans.
Stay tuned for... several exciting schemes, including a sooper-seekrit soon-to-be-lauched collaborative project and an expansion on last September's Do-It-Yourself MFA concept. For more information on DIY MFA, visit the tab above.
